Known as both Casa Cenote or Cenote Manati, this brackish but crystal clear-water sinkhole or cenote is an oasis in the midst of the mangrove, and has a short tunnel that passes through to the Caribbean sea, allowing access to any creature that may be daring enough to pass through.

I have had many memorable encounters with unexpected animals, including remoras, tarpon, moray eels, a loggerhead sea turtle, and even a small resident crocodile.

The mangrove environment provides a perfect sanctuary for juvenile fresh and salt water fish, and a truly unique aquascape that’s enhanced by incandescent rays of sunlight that pierce through the tree roots.

The site’s shallow depth and controlled environment provides a perfect place for training.

Even though I have dived there countless times, Casa Cenote is one of those places that I fall in love with a little bit more each time I dive there.
